A majority of Americans, 56.8% think Biden's declaration of war on Trump voters was a "dangerous escalation in rhetoric" which was "designed to incite conflict amongst Americans," according to a new poll by the Trafalgar group.

Perhaps even more telling is that 71% of Democrats said Biden's speech - in which he said "MAGA forces" pose a "clear and present danger" to Democracy - thought it was simply "acceptable campaign messaging that is to be expected in an election year."

What should worry Democrats is that 62% of independent voters agreed with 89.1% of Republicans who said the speech was a "dangerous escalation."

This, from the president who campaigned on uniting America against hatred. 

Conservatives on social media were appalled at the speech.
